CARL REINER The comedy pioneer penned his signature on this check Check signed: "Carl Reiner", 8½x3½. Los Angeles, California, 1964 March 9. Check No. 1966. Drawn on the account of Carl and Estelle Reiner, Sunset Office, City National Bank, payable to Rand-Fields, Beverly Hills, California for $421.15. Carl Reiner (b. 1922) first came to fame as a performer on the live comedy variety show Your Show of Shows (1950-1954). This sketch comedy television series served as a workshop for many future comedy pioneers, including Sid Caesar, Mel Brooks, and Neil Simon. All four men went on to become major comedy stars, mostly as writers but in front of the camera as well. His working relationship with Sid Caesar continued with Caesar's Hour (1954-1957). He went on to be the creator of The Dick Van Dyke Show, which aired from 1961 to 1966. The show is considered one of the greatest of all time. Later in his career, he moved into the director's chair, beginning with television shows such as Good Morning, World (1967) and The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-1974). The third film he directed, 1977's Oh, God!, became an iconic film for its comedic perspective on the main character's relationship with an entity he isn't sure he believes in. Other notable films include The Comic (1970) and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982), the latter of which starred Steve Martin. During his career, Reiner won 9 Emmy Awards (15 nominations) and a single Grammy Award, the 1999 Best Spoken Comedy Album award for a more modern take on his comedy routine The 2000 Year Old Man. In this hilarious stage routine that was turned into a television special in 1975, Mel Brooks portrays a man who claims he is 2000 years old, and Reiner plays a reporter. More recently, Reiner has done some acting, most notably in the Ocean's Trilogy, which were all released from 2001 to 2007. He also worked on several Broadway productions, most notably Enter Laughing (1963-1964). Reiner's son Rob Reiner has become a respected director and actor himself, most famous for his work (as an actor or director) for This is Spinal Tap (1984), Stand By Me (1986), and All in the Family (1971-1978), and The Princess Bride (1987). Cancellation stamps on verso show through, touching "R" in Reiner. Cancellation holes, not near signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
